The fourth grade class at The Pathfinder School are very informed about the concept of stress. During brainstorming, each student freely expressed the situations in which they feel stress and equally as freely were able to share their coping skills. Their film evolved naturally from this brainstorm. They wrote the lyrics, composed the melody, and instrumental backing track, and preformed all parts of their song "I'm Stressed." The images in the film depict the feelings stress can cause in the body, ending with a few students sharing their stress coping skills.
The sixth grade students at The Pathfinder School composed a song, including piano accompaniment and electronic backing track representing a celebration of racial diversity. The face painting film includes members of the class painting on the face of one class member representing the ways that we impact and support each other in celebration of our uniqueness.
The fifth grade students at The Pathfinder School in Traverse City decided to use our school's honor code as the basis for their PSA about building character. This code is made up of the 4 B's: Be Kind, Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible. Each 'B' is depicted by a singing bumble bee holding a screen on which an animation of the B and what it means is playing.
